Teisha__1__972530308.jpgMy name is Teisha Casasanta, for over 20 years, I have been helping families through the death of a loved one as a Funeral Director. I have also experienced a number of personal losses. Now I have transitioned to coaching to help you move forward in your grief as a grief coach. For years I always thought about the families I served and wondered how they were doing a year later. Now I get to answer that question and ease their pain in the years to come. 

Sessions are held over the phone in the comfort of your home, car, wherever you would like. We simply talk about where you are in the grieving process and put in place action steps to help you move beyond certain obstacles you may be facing. I have experience with complicated grief from tragic circumstances and with ptsd and trauma as well as healthy grief and assisting you to find peace. 



About Jane Asher:

Jane Asher has always been a natural connector who has enjoyed a successful career in media and the music industry, most notably at major radio stations in San Diego and Santa Barbara. Several years ago, she stepped away from terrestrial radio when Empower Radio reached out and asked her to create a show about her passion. The Next Room podcast was born.

Demystifying death daily, she interviews professionals and practitioners from diverse backgrounds about death, dying, grief, beliefs and cultural traditions surrounding the journey we all must ultimately make. The show airs across 11 platforms and has connected her with extraordinary people throughout this community. The Next Room has recently become the official podcast of the Beautiful Dying Expo.

Jane is also passionate about being involved in mission work. She has been part of a team for over five years that has built homes in Tijuana for families in need through Lutheran Border Concerns. She has traveled to El Salvador to feed the homeless, Malaysia to help build a school on Borneo, and Armenia to work with women and children in the small village of Amre Taza. Most recently, she was on a humanitarian mission in the Dominican Republic. 

Her book, The Next Room is a story transcending space and time, of a relationship between mother and daughter that grew stronger through death. Written together, by initially enlisting interpretation through a psychic medium, The Next Room takes us on a daughter's journey through learning eternal life lessons on forgiveness, grief, grace, gratitude, and the limitless love of all, God.

Jane lives in San Diego with her husband, Tom. She is now answering her passion-filled purpose and writing daily alongside her puppy and muse, Mamba.
